Leeds Rhinos are sweating over the fitness of Kevin Sinfield after he picked up an ankle injury in Friday night’s 18-12 win over Warrington.
The Rhinos made it two wins from two thanks to two tries from Zak Hardaker and another from Tom Briscoe, but the victory was soured by the injury to Sinfield.
Coach Brian McDermott says he does not think it is that serious and has ruled out a broken ankle, but it is still a concern nonetheless.
Sinfield left the field with seven minutes remaining and McDermott is now hoping for good news.
“I don’t think he’s great,” said McDermott afterwards. “I don’t think it’s a break.
“He’ll go through all the processes with the medical staff and we’ll get him scanned.
“I don’t think it’s a horrible one and it’s too early to make predictions but I don’t think it will be any less than a couple of weeks.”
Meanwhile, McDermott was delighted with the win, but knows it is still very early days in the season and is refusing to get carried.
“On the whole, I’m happy with where we are at moment,” McDermott said after his team made it two wins from two.
“But we’re two games into a season and we know it will be tough next week at Catalan and in the weeks thereafter.
“Warrington were a lot better than last week and we knew they would be.”
